Dear Rune

Thanks for contacting us. We have sold guitars to Norway before so we know it can be done successfully.
1) I have assumed you want a cedar soundboard and an Alhambra case in this example. We have to pack the guitar in a hard case when sending outside the UK. We offer a 10% discount on the case price when bought at the same time as a guitar. There are other cases to choose from.
We do not charge VAT(sales tax) when sending outside the UK
Alhambra 9P Classical Guitar. Price: £727.66
Alhambra Silver Guitar Strings. Extra High Tension
Price: 0.00
Cases. Alhambra Classic Guitar Case Price: £90.79
Insured Courier to Norway £90 (sorry but you are one of the most expensive countries in Europe to send to - not our fault I promise, we just charge what we have to pay).
You would be responsible for all customs duties and related import costs into Norway.
2) If you wanted to have the guitar delivered to the UK then the price would be the above, less courier, plus VAT which would be £827.45 x 1.175 = £961.68. There is no delivery charge to the UK. If you asked us in advance we could help you to reclaim the VAT when you left the UK (less a £15 administrative charge).
We do not have a business address in London but I am sure we could find some way to help. Last time we delivered an Alhambra which was about to be taken out of the country (to Singapore) we delivered to a relative of the customer. So we could deliver to an address you gave us in advance. Let me know what your travel plans are - when and for how long you will be in London - then I can be more specific in my suggestions.
We have the 9P in stock today with both cedar and spruce soundboards.
You can see some notes of an earlier Norwegian customer here (
I hope this helps. Please email or phone if you want to know more.

Yours sincerely,

Nicholas Mahoney
